Late Senator John McCain gave former disgraced FBI chief James Comey five different reports from Christopher Steele that the agency did not previously possess, which was also linked to the unsupported 'Trump and Russia' allegations, according to the Justice Department’s recent Inspector General report.

There has long been speculation as to why McCain passed Steele’s anti-Trump dossier to Comey just weeks after the 2016 presidential election.

By then, the former MI6 agent had met multiple times with FBI agents in order to provide them with his dubious reports.

But by the fall of 2016, Steele was dropped by the FBI after he spoke to the media.

The information in the report suggests McCain served as a channel for Steele’s information to reach the FBI after he was cut off as a source.

Whether McCain was aware that Steele had previously been terminated as an FBI source is still not clear.

The IG report also confirms that a McCain aid obtained the Steele reports from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson.

This means that when McCain gave the anti-Trump charges to Comey, he was aware that the material originated with a firm that specializes in controversial enemy tactics.

Trump's primary political opponents paid Fusion GPS for anti-Trump work, including Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) via the Perkins Coie law firm.

The IG report states:

Several weeks later, on December 9, 2016, Senator John McCain provided Corney with a collection of 16 Steele election reports, 5 of which Steele had not given the FBI.

McCain had obtained these reports from a staff member at the McCain Institute. The McCain Institute staff member had met with Steele and later acquired the reports from Simpson.

The anonymous McCain staff member is known to be David J. Kramer, who provided BuzzFeed with the Steele dossier.

BuzzFeed then published the Steele dossier in 2017, which set off an attempted smear campaign against Trump.

Trump slammed the news outlet for publishing the unverified dossier calling it 'a very sad day for journalism.'

Although McCain admitted to personally handing the dossier to Comey, he refused to comment about whether he had a role in providing the dossier to BuzzFeed despite repeated requests.

But McCain maintained he had an “obligation” to pass the dossier charges against Trump to Comey in his book published in 2018.

“Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain exclaimed.
